Wordy Wednesday: Ronald Reagan

  • Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
  • We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
  • Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
  • If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
  • Government is like a baby: an alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.
  • Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
  • A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.
  • Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
  • A hippie is someone who looks like Tarzan, walks like Jane and smells like Cheetah.
  • Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.
  • It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.
  • We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
  • We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
  • The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.
  • We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.
  • The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.
  • Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.
  • How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
  • Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.
  • I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
  • Welfare’s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.
  • I’ve never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a ‘fat cat’ and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a ‘public-spirited philanthropist’.
  • Man is not free unless government is limited.
  • I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life.
  • Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.

  • New blog post about how getting into what’s essentially a grown up sorority after not being able to participate in Greek Life in college reminded me that it’s never too late to create the life you want; I know it sounds stupid on the surface but check it out anyway 🤪 — link in bio!

  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.

  • In case you ever feel like an idiot, tbt to when I thought a strainer was a tray

  • Yes it was a flawed administration in more than one way but this is my aesthetic ok
  • In 2019 instead of making a list of habits and goals I want to implement and accomplish, I’m thinking more broadly about the kind of person I want to be so that no matter what this year has in store for me I’m in a place where I can make the most of it. New blog post — link in bio!
  • Not to flex or anything but this whole outfit costs the same as a full tank on a Prius
